Join the Through the Woods Quilt-Along!

Hello friends! This is Jennifer Long from Sew A Story, a fabric designer with Riley Blake Designs and a doll and quilt pattern designer. Are you ready for a quilt-along that also tells a story?

Join me starting April 3 as we sew the “Through the Woods” quilt together! This quilt follows the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and we’ll sew the story block by block!

It’s going to be so fun — and the QAL is totally FREE! Keep reading for all the important details!

This pattern begins on the bottom right corner with Little Red walking through the forest and encountering familiar faces. Her path ends in an expected place: with Grandma’s famous apple pie crumb muffins and our favorite characters spending time together. While making this quilt, I encourage you to revisit old tales, spend time with loved ones, and tell the story of this beloved fairytale. Let’s journey together…Through The Woods.
